Today’s health care system is enormously complex. Not only are there constant advances in research and treatment, but there are also more and more non-clinical decision points for patients and their families. Effectively navigating health plans and community programs can be cumbersome. Anna Maria College offers both clinical and non-clinical degree programs because career options in the health field are more expansive than ever.
Anna Maria offers a Bachelor of Science in Health and Community Service for those looking for non-clinical careers in health care. Graduates from the Health and Community Service program will be able to work as an important member of a healthcare team to guide patients through a variety of complex systems such as health plans, hospitals and ambulatory care organizations, health and human services, public health programs, and medical practice offices. This major can also be used as a stepping stone to similar majors such as nursing, health and human services, and social sciences.
Students looking to pursue clinical careers choose our four-year Bachelor of Science in Nursing. Two program tracks for nursing are offered at Anna Maria College and consist of a traditional four year Bachelor of Science in Nursing for entry-level students and the online RN to BSN completion program for Registered Nurses. The overall goal of the nursing program is to provide high quality education that prepares students to practice safe and compassionate professional nursing care as beginning practitioners. Our inaugural class of nursing graduates saw 93 percent passing the state licensure exam on the first attempt, exceeding state and national averages.
